I got my Llarowe Mystery Bag in the mail today!!! I really love these bags. (To see my previous bags, click here.) I love the surprise and I love trying polishes that I wouldn’t normally pick out for myself. I got three polishes:
Liquid Sky Lacquer New Beginnings
Darling Diva Polish Persephone
Wicked Polish Dropping Balls

First up, let’s take a look at Liquid Sky Lacquer New Beginnings. The application on this one was very smooth. I needed three coats for the opacity shown. If you wanted to do few than that, just start with a coat of white polish. I didn’t really like this one in the bottle, but I LOVE it on. It’s a gorgeous clean, shimmery, milky polish with cobalt blue glitters. It reminds me of the movie “Frozen” but that’s probably because “Frozen” mani’s are all over the place right now!
Next up, we have Darling Diva Polish Persephone. I must not be good at judging polishes in their bottles, because this is another one I didn’t think I was going to like. Once I had it on, me oh my! This baby is gorgeous! It’s a duochrome that shifts from cranberry to blue. Just stunning. This is two coats.
This last one is Wicked Polish Dropping Balls. Again–I’m super bad at judging polishes from their bottles. This much I learned today. I thought this was going to be my favorite of the three. However, the application on this one is atrocious. It was nearly impossible to get a smooth, even coat. I don’t even know how to describe it. It was gloopy and thick and I felt like a child trying to play with mommy’s makeup. This is my first (and last?) Wicked Polish. Those of you who have used this line before, is it normal for application to be this difficult?
Even though I ended up not liking one of the three polishes, the mystery bags are totally worth it. I got two polishes that are beautiful and they are both ones I never wouldn’t have purchased of my own accord. I would call this bag a winner!
What do you think? Do you have a favorite of the three?
